British Airways Executive Club is offering a nice deal in association with Laithwaites Wine. The upshot is that you will receive 15 bottles of wine and 1,000 Avios for £52.68.
You need to order by 30th June, although similar offers crop up pretty regularly.
You buy a discounted case of wine (there are a 7 mixed cases to choose from) and get 3 bottles of free Rioja included too (so 15 bottles in total), as well as the 1,000 Avios.
I checked out the wines in the ‘Season’s Favourites’ case and they look pretty decent, retailing at about £8-10 per bottle normally. The free Rioja is usually priced similarly too.
Even if the wine isn’t great, 15 bottles for £52.68 works out at just £3.51 per bottle, so I doubt you’ll be too unhappy with it! If you value the 1,000 Avios as being worth about £10, then the offer is obviously even better, at just ~ £2.85 per bottle.
What’s the catch?
Laithwaites automatically signs you up to receive another (full price) case every 8-12 weeks, so you have to get in touch to let them know that you don’t want that. It shouldn’t be a big hassle to cancel, but I haven’t actually tested it out myself yet and I know some companies can be a bit of a nightmare.
Discounted wine and 1,000 Avios– what’s not to like? – On the assumption that cancelling isn’t a pain!
Has you tried Laithwaites before? What was the wine like and was cancelling an issue?
